Glimmer can turn invisible?!

The last new power that Glimmer demonstrated was the most impressive and easily the most ridiculous. In the season two episode "The Perils Of Peekablue" Glimmer demonstrates the ability to turn herself invisible! Not only that but she can also turn others invisible! Now in the previous seventy-nine episodes this ability would have gotten her and her friends out of a lot of scrapes. I would not have minded as much had the writer explained in a throwaway line that this was a new power, or a developing power...

That's an excellent point, James! What's the deal, right? :)

This alternate take on the stock animation was very impressive ... Reminds me of the storyboard artwork. :)

It's also amusing that the guest character in this episode is a King Micah look-alike, from "Micah Of Bright Moon!" :)

One more thing ... I get a kick out of Bow's sarcastic reply to Adora's request, as she escapes through the secret passageway:
"Stay here she says! Where else are we gonna go?" This kind of remark would also be used in episodes from the Filmation's "Ghostbusters" series and DIC's "The Legend Of Zelda" series. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Well, Glimmer's powers are light-based, so I guess if she concentrates hard enough, she can reflecht light and turn it back on itself. I also have a feeling Glimmer's powers are still developing, so it would make a little bit of sense that she couldn't do this before.
